Rick Ross assassination attempt might have links to Gangster Disciples
Jan-30-2013 371 0


There is no shortage of suspects in Monday's assassination attempt on well-known rap star Rick Ross. And they all lead back to Chicago.

Ross survived a shooting ambush in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Monday morning.

The worst kept secret in the rap world has been a dispute between Ross and the Chicago-based Gangster Disciples. Ross was apparently targeted by gang leaders after he used some of their signs, symbols and logos without paying them the required fees.

Over the past few months, gang members have posted video death threats against the rapper on YouTube. Monday, a hit squad opened fire on Ross in South Florida.

There was a spray of gunfire just before daybreak on the silver Rolls Royce being driven by rapper Rick Ross, stage name for William L. Roberts.

"Nine or 10 shots, rapid fire," said a witness. "AK-47 or pretty large rifle, it was definitely a rifle."

Fort Lauderdale police tell the I-Team that they cannot confirm nor dismiss whether the allege threats to the rap star are legitimate but that detectives are examining the forensic evidence.

Despite all the bullets, rapper Ross, celebrating his 37th birthday Monday, was not hurt and neither was his girlfriend in the car, which crashed into an apartment.

Videos claiming to have been posted by Gangster Disciple members in cities across the U.S. all say that the rapper needs to pay the gang or he will be killed.

Authorities in South Florida say the motive for the attack is unclear.

t is becoming more and more apparent that Sony executives are just as afraid, if not more, to premiere The Interview because of the continually embarrassing and racist email leaks as they are of the alleged promise of North Korean terrorism on American soil.

Take Exhibit D, for example. Another racist email shared by Sony executives that warned them not to cast two-time Academy Award-winner Denzel Washington in big budget films because he does not fare well at the box office, particulary overseas.

This, of course, follows the racially-tinged emails exposed about Sony execs that greatly disparaged President Obama, Kevin Hart as well as made fun of white celebrities who adopt black babies — including Angelina Jolie, whom Sony executives also blasted in private emails.
According to emails from the execs, two-time Oscar winner Washington should be “blacklisted” overseas — because he is … well … black.

Quite an incredible e-mail thread since Sony is the studio that just released Washington’s latest film The Equalizer. The emails were hacked adn posted online, according to radaronline.com, becuase the studio was about to release The Interview, a comedy about the assassination of North Korea’s dictator.

The producer who sent the e-mail to Sony Chairman Michael Lynton said they hoped the statement was not “inappropriate or provocative.” However, the producer did suggest Sony should avoid casting black actors to appeal to an international market that the producer deemed “racist.”
“No, I am not saying The Equalizer should not have been made or that African American actors should not have been used (I personally think Denzel is the best actor of his generation),” the producer wrote.

“Casting him is saying we’re ok with a double if the picture works,” the producer wrote, using a baseball analogy. “He’s reliable at the domestic [box office], safe, but has not had a huge success in years. I believe whenever possible the non event pictures, extra ‘bets’ should have a large inherent upside and be made for the right price. Here there isn’t a large inherent upside.”
Let’s do the math, shall we? Washington’s The Equalizer grossed $191 million at theaters across the glob. Forty-seven percent of the ticket sales coming from outside of the United States.
According to Hollywood execs, those are nice number, but not good enough. Most believe that upwards of 65 percent of sales should come from box offices outside the United States, the analysis said.

The reason Washington did not produce those higher numbers? Well, according to the producer, it was Washington’s race. He’s black.

“I believe that the international motion picture audience is racist — in general pictures with an African American lead don’t play well overseas,” the producer wrote. “But Sony sometimes seems to disregard that a picture must work well internationally to both maximize returns and reduce risk, especially pics with decent size budgets.”

An Equalizer sequel, which another e-mail said was set for 2017, would be “a double, with a remote chance of a home run,” the producer added.

Kevin Hart is speaking out in response to leaked Sony emails in which one exec called him a “whore.”

“Knowing your self worth is extremely important, people,” the movie star wrote Thursday on Instagram.

“I worked very hard to get where I am today. I look at myself as a brand and because of that I will never allow myself to be taking advantage of.

“I OWN MY BRAND…I MAKE SMART DECISIONS FOR MY BRAND….I PROTECT MY BRAND,” Hart added in caps. “Which is why I’m able to brush ignorance off of my shoulder and continue to move forward.

“I refuse to be broken, people,” he concluded his post. “With that being said its now time for me to get back to building this empire that I’ve always dreamed of!”

Hart’s comments come in response after hackers leaked multiple emails between Sony execs, including an exchange about the 35-year old comedian addressing Hart’s request for additional payment to promote his 2014 comedy “Think Like a Man Too” on Twitter.

“I’m not saying he’s a whore, but he’s a whore,” Clint Culpepper called Hart in a letter to Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal.

Hart’s name also popped up in a series of email exchanges between Pascal and superproducer Scott Rudin, when the two were discussing what to ask President Obama at a 2013 Democratic fundraiser.

The two riffed on asking Obama about various films starring African-Americans such as “Django Unchained” and “12 Years a Slave.”

“I bet he likes Kevin Hart,” Rudin wrote.

Rudin and Pascal have both apologized for their comments in the leaked emails.

He tried for years to keep his northwest Atlanta mansion. But Jermaine Dupri’s has lost his former home to foreclosure, according to Fulton County legal notices.

The producer, songwriter and performer owes $2.5 million on the 9,441-square-foot home, but is unable to make the monthly payments, according to a mortgage foreclosure notice. The property is valued at nearly $3.7 million, Fulton tax records showed.

“The debt secured by said Deed to Secure Debt has been and is hereby declared due because of, among other possible events of default, non-payment of the monthly installments on said loan,” the legal notice states. “The debt remaining in default, this sale will be made for the purpose of paying the same and all expenses of this sale, including attorney’s fees (notice of intent to collect attorney’s fees having been given).”

The Atlanta native helped launch the careers of such artists as Kris Kross and Da Brat and previously dated Janet Jackson. Tuesday night, Dupri joined Usher on stage at Philips Arena. But in recent years, Dupri’s money woes have made headlines.

In May 2013, SunTrust Bank filed suit against Dupri and his So So Def Productions for about $1.9 million, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution previously reported. Later that year, Dupri filed a response, claiming the bank changed the terms of the loan, leaving him with “unachievable payment terms” and fighting state and federal tax liens.

Foreclosure proceedings were initiated in 2011 on the home, but a planned auction in May of that year was canceled at the last minute. Dupri’s Mount Paran home was advertised for foreclosure again in December 2012, according to records in the Fulton County Daily Report. But it never sold.

Earlier this year, a former road manager for Dupri filed suit against him seeking four years of overtime pay, the AJC reported.

Dupri lived in the six-bedroom home for about 10 years. The 19-room home has nine bathrooms, according to property records.

It was not known late Wednesday whether Dupri’s home had been auctioned.

Chris Rock raised eyebrows for his joke about an NFL star by invoking Bill Cosby.

During a screening of his comedy "Top Five" in Baltimore on Tuesday, the actor surprised moviegoers when he appeared to introduce the film, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Playing to the hometown crowd, the newspaper reports that Rock made wisecracks about Baltimore Ravens rivals the Pittsburgh Steelers - including singling out the team's quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, by calling him "the original Cosby."

"That's horrible, that's gonna go everywhere," he added.

Rock's joke about the Steelers' star refers to Roethlisberger being suspended for the first six games of the 2010 NFL season due to being accused of sexual assault. While he was investigated for allegedly assaulting a college student at a Georgia nightclub in 2010, no charges were filed.

Rock, of course, was comparing Roethlisberger's notoriety to Cosby, who has recently been caught in the midst of a scandal after several woman accused him of drugging and raping them over the past few decades.

A video clip of comedian Hannibal Buress' stand-up routine about the allegations against the TV star went viral, and is viewed as playing a key role in the increased attention paid to Cosby's accusers.

When asked for thoughts on Buress' comedy routine about Cosby during an interview with radio station Power 105.1 on Monday, Rock praised the "Broad City" star.

"Hannibal Buress is one of the most real, hysterical, up-and-coming comedians out there," the "Top Five" star said. "And I don't think he did it to (start anything). We just live in a world where you're never alone."

Diddy and Drake allegedly fought outside the club LIV in Miami on Sunday. According to at least one report, the physical brawl began after an argument over music rights to a song. Diddy and Drake were both at the venue for a birthday party celebrating DJ Khaled.

The New York Post cites a source who says the two hip-hop stars’ fight started when “Diddy claimed that Drake was using music without the proper rights.” Gossip Cop has reached out for confirmation of both the fight and the alleged reason behind it. As of now, neither Diddy nor Drake has commented.

There’s a separate report currently circulating that claims Diddy’s girlfriend Cassie was at the center of the Diddy-Drake brawl. This version of events, first spread by habitually wrong webloid MediaTakeOut, is false. The site seems to have seen reports of an actual confrontation between Diddy and Drake and decided to sensationalize it as a jealous showdown over Cassie.

A number of outlets are also picking up unconfirmed details about the nature of alleged injuries to Drake. Gossip Cop has not yet confirmed the extent of injuries to Drake, Diddy or anyone else said to be involved in the fight.

A male rapper and a female dancer were found dead inside an apartment in a high-end residential complex near The Grove in an apparent murder-suicide that drew a SWAT team response Monday morning.

The two people found dead were identified as musician Earl Hayes, a rapper and associate of professional boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., and Stephanie Moseley, a dancer and actress in the cast of the VH1 drama series “Hit the Floor” about NBA cheerleaders.

The pair was identified outside the scene at the Palazzo East apartments by Burrel Wilks, who described himself as Hayes’ life coach and close friend. Mourners were posting “RIP” messages to both Hayes and Moseley social media accounts Monday.

Hayes described the couple as longtime partners who were in the process of breaking up.

Officers were called to the scene about 7:30 a.m. by a resident of the Palazzo East, after the individual heard a woman screaming and up to 10 gunshots, Los Angeles Police Department officials said.

When patrol officers entered the apartment building, they contacted the caller and decided to enter the apartment where the screams and shots were heard, LAPD Capt. Ron Leslie said.

Inside the apartment, officers found a back bedroom door closed. When they sought to go into the room, they heard two more gunshots, police said.

A SWAT team later entered the room and found the two bodies inside.

Police had not identified the two people and it was not clear who shot whom.

The incident took place within a large, upscale apartment complex in the 6000 block of West Third Street (map) in Los Angeles’ Fairfax District.

Residents of the complex were leaving units as late at 9 a.m., apparently under an evacuation order.

Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran's tumultuous love affair is ending with a bang!

"I was locked up for damn near 4 months and only got 1 visit from you while u was hosting parties and taking secret trips to Toronto, going on dates with Drake," the 25-year-old singer wrote on Instagram, which has since been deleted, according to Complex magazine.

Brown's message began with, "We've got scars, some of them u gave me, some of them I've caused. That ride or die act we have been fooling the world with obviously ain't working."

The "Loyal" singer first began airing out their dirty laundry while performing at Power 106's Cali Christmas Concert in Los Angles on Friday night.

"Well, I'm single too!" he said after asking the ladies in the crowd what their relationship statues were.

Chris Brown says that Karrueche Tran took ‘secret trips to Toronto, going on dates with Drake’ while he was locked up.

He then added, "F--- that b---h!"

Tran responded on Twitter Saturday writing, "N----s be in they feelings when you break up with them lol."

"When this relationship first started u knew what it was and even participated in threesomes," Brown wrote on Instagram. "I slowed all that s--t down. So let's not try and save face for public opinion because I don't need to play victim so people can take my side."

The Tran-Brown on-again, off-again affair began years ago when he was still dealing with Rihanna. After RiRi officially made an exit from her longtime romance with Brown, it appeared that Tran had taken center stage in the R&B bad boy's life.

While they've seemingly gone separate ways several times in the past, it appears to be the real deal this time around.

"All these celebrity n----s ain't s--t and focus only on themselves," Brown wrote.

"I made it clear to the world who my girl was and made your life equal to mine even at the coast of me not focusing on my career at times," he continued. "So miss me wit the bulls--t. Now yall know the real."

Tran took a less aggressive approach in her response posting a statement on Instagram Saturday: "When something bad happens you can either let it define you, let it destroy you, or let it strengthen you. The choice is yours."

Along with the post she wrote, "Once you find strength within yourself, it's hard to allow any type of bs around you. I refuse to be repeatedly mistreated especially by someone who claims to love me. That's not love. And if that's what you define as love then I don't want it. Yes, I have not been so smart before in the past but I made a promise to be a better and stronger woman and I'm keeping that promise. If you can't love me the right way, then don't love me at all. Don't be mad at me because I prefer to be happy. Keep love in your life folks. Not just love between people but love within your HEART, flowing in all aspects of your life. I promise life is so much better."

On Sunday, Brown posted a pretty photo of his home's holiday decorations.

"Got my tree up for the holidays,"

At the premiere of his new film, "Top Five," Chris Rock talked about his recent essay about race in Hollywood.

The 49-year-old star doesn't see the essay as a courageous act; rather that he was stating the facts about being black in the entertainment industry.

In the essay in The Hollywood Reporter, Rock questions how a "liberal town" like Hollywood is also "kind of racist" when it comes to hiring practices and diversity. He called Hollywood "a white industry. Just as the NBA is a black industry."

Rock told The Associated Press on Wednesday night he was merely speaking from the heart.

"I don't look at it as even being political. I'm just stating the facts. I'm not trying to be political at all, that's (Jon) Stewart, that's (Bill) Maher, that's, you know, not me," Rock said.

Rock also reacted to Wednesday's grand jury decision in New York not to indict a white police officer in the chokehold death of a black Staten Island man last summer. That altercation was captured on video with the suspect screaming, "I can't breathe."

"It's sad when something is on videotape. It's sad," Rock said.

"Law and Order: SVU" star Ice-T was more forthcoming.

"My stomach is twisted over this thing. We all kind of witnessed a snuff film on television when you saw that video. And when you come back and say no crime has been committed, it's hard for people to swallow," he said.

Congratulations are in order for Tyler Perry and his longtime girlfriend, Gelila Bekele.

The couple is now the proud parents of a baby boy named Aman, who was born Nov. 30, E! News reports.

"Everyone is doing great," a source said. "They are so happy."

While Perry kept their pregnancy quiet for a while, once the news surfaced he couldn't contain his excitement at becoming a first-time dad.

"We're very excited about it, very excited," he previously told E! at the New York premiere of "Gone Girl."

His joy may have also caused him to spill the beans on the baby's gender.

"The greatest gift I'm being given right now is the opportunity to give the little boy in me everything I never had, so that's what I'm excited about," he said during an interview with "Extra."

"This beautiful human being that God has allowed to come into my life for me to get to know, because they come with their own personalities, who they are, to shepherd and usher him," he said before suddenly pausing.

"I said 'him!'" he said after catching his slip.

Aman Tyler Perry is also the first child for Gelila.
